Black Friday Tech & Gaming Deals 2021

With vaccinations and booster shots rolling out, this year’s Black Friday (and Cyber Monday) offerings may be more of an in-person affair than last year. If you’re someone who loves the thrill of standing in line and speed walking around Target or Best Buy to find the hot new deal (no shade: I am one of these people), then 2021 is shaping up to be a glorious return to form. On the other hand, if you’ve grown accustomed to online shopping during the pandemic and are just as happy to scroll through deals on your phone in a post-turkey coma, you do you.

Supply chain issues are sure to make some of the hottest items a bit more cutthroat than in years past, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try, especially on Cyber Monday! After all, sometimes the thrill of the hunt is more fun than saving money anyway. Whether you’re a serious gamer, hoping to pull off some Santa magic for your kids, or want to hop on the AirPods bandwagon, here are some of the best tech and gaming deals for Black Friday and Cyber Monday this year.

Regardless of whether you’re team iPhone or team Android, there’s a wide array of deals for your new smartphone this Black Friday. Cases and screen protectors from Insignia and Platinum are 50 percent off for select smartphone models at Best Buy. These deals, combined with special offers on AirPods and Beats headphones, mean that you’ll be able to really make the most of your new phone.

If you’re not so interested in the iPhone or Pixel, there are other deals on hardware to be found, too. You can save up to 30 percent off of a Samsung Galaxy phone at Best Buy this holiday season. Best Buy also has both the Galaxy S21 5G and Note20 5G for up to $600 off with a qualified phone trade-in.

Nothing brings a smile to my face on Black Friday like seeing someone with a gigantic television in their cart. This Black Friday there are plenty of great television deals to be had, depending on what specs you’re looking for. If size is what you care about, you can snag a 65” LG Smart LED TV for $549.99 from Target, with Amazon offering Samsung’s 75” Frame television for $800 less than list price. 

Of course, if you can make it in-store, Best Buy is one of the better options when it comes to their Black Friday TV sales. Rather than traffic in the lesser-known generic brands that Target and Walmart generally stock as their doorbusters, Best Buy gives you the goods with name-brand deals on Samsung televisions and more. Samsung’s 75” NEO QLED television is on sale for $900 less than MSRP this Black Friday ($1,899) and the 75” Class 7 Series LED 4K TV is listed at $849.99—$250 under MSRP.
